Timber Framed Home Inspired by Nature

Inspired by nature – informed by the environment. This magnificent timber frame home sits lightly on the land. All the wood used in building was sourced and milled locally to create the soaring fir tongue and groove ceiling both inside and out. Giant timbers and beams carved from local trees frame a breath catching ocean view. Enduring and natural materials include James Hardie board and batten siding accented by local natural rock and cedar shingles.

The interior inspires awe with its soaring 16-foot vaulted ceiling framing the ocean and treetops of Salt Spring Island. It also comforts with its warm touches like cosy window seats, a high efficiency wood burning rock fireplace and extensive use of custom wood cabinetry and fir trim.

Beauty meets sustainability with a heat recovery ventilator system, a rainwater capture system, radiant in-floor heating powered by a heat pump, low VOC paints, and reclaimed fir flooring.

The beauty of nature inspires a home of infinite quality and deepest respect for the environment.
